|Soothing Images 1-15 - Bing Satellites|
The first in a new series of live, improvised ambient albums. 15 quiet ambient songs with 15 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create new themes and melodies...

|Landscape and Drift - Bing Satellites|
Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all of...

An album of chilled, glitchy ambient music heavily inspired by All The Lost Souls, the collaboration between myself, Getzel and piper_ben.
